Coral bleaching has been the main concern this past year.  We see lots of small corals recovering during the cooler months. See more.

Counting survivors.  80% of coral species survived these events.  There was a decline in small fish. The population of larger herbivorous fish increased.  See more.

Basis for hope.  Greg Torda and his team are investigating how coral species adapt to higher sea temperatures. See more.

Sustainable fishing.  Sam Aird is studying middens to learn what people were catching on Lizard Island 2,000 years ago.  Her data will inform management of sustainable fishing, See more.

Science publications.  The Station library now has over 2,000 science publications, all based on local research.  See details.
